Heart Health Month: Show Yourself Some Love

Show yourself some love; get heart healthy; Stethoscope in heart shape

February is heart health month and it’s a great time to raise awareness and learn what you can do to reduce your risk of heart disease. Because many cases of heart disease are controllable, you can take charge of your health by actively working to improve it by making some simple lifestyle changes and making yourself and your health a priority.

Self Care

Self care is about taking time to pay attention to you, in a way that ensures that you are being cared for by you. Did you know that half of Americans have at least one of the top 3 risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking? Did you know heart disease doesn’t just happen to older adults? In fact, millions of Americans of all ages have high blood pressure, including millions of people in their 40s and 50s. About half of the people with high blood pressure don’t have it under control. Having uncontrolled high blood pressure is one of the biggest risks for heart disease and other harmful conditions, such as stroke.
